More recent aquisitions

I went to the MIT Swapfest today and picked up a few pieces of computer hardware:

  • 2 Promise PCI UltraATA 133 Hard Drive Controllers (breaking the 137GB limit!): $10
  • 2 UltraATA ribbon cables: $2
  • 2 Dell 230W power supplies that could replace the power supply in the server hosting this blog: $2.

All in all, I feel like I did pretty well.

File this under desired future acquisitions:

Yesterday, I played a Nintendo DS Lite for the first time. We took a family trip to Target at like 8:30 in the morning, since my daughter had woken us up at 6am. I found myself alone in the electronics department, and was thus free to play the normally mobbed DS Lite. I enjoyed the game (Super Mario whatever) but I didn’t really enjoy holding the device, since it had clearly been gripped by an army of greasy-handed juveniles prior to my arrival. I’ve been wanting a portable gaming device for a while now and the DS Lite seems like the way to go. I can’t decide if I should buy one now or hope to get one for my birthday or Christmas or if I should save my money for the Wii. I’ve been trying to convince my wife that we should get his and hers DS Lites. She seems less than convinced at this point, but I’ll keep working on her…

    I like that you’re having this argument on Colin’s blog.

    Heather, I also like that you put your name as “Your Wife.”
